Male sex-specific, soccer-related injury coverage to follow

by CoachZ on January 19, 2009

I realize I have been covering the female side of soccer-related injuries with little or no attention paid to the male side of the equation. The reason for this will become apparent in the weeks to come. I hope you will bear with me as we explore injury, rehabilitation, and prevention in both male and female soccer athletes; to include youth and adult soccer participants, coaches, trainers, administrators, parents, fans, etc.

There are pronounced differences between youth and adult participants, and between male and female athletes. Regarding sex-specific, soccer-related injuries, it is important to keep in mind that many of these differences can be avoided, or at least allayed (alleviated), to a significant degree through proper training, before and after injury.

More to follow tomorrow.
